Question about ASUS VIA Apollo Pro133A Chipset CUV4X-E Motherboard
Will it boot from other CD's? If it is not booting from any CD, it's probably an issue of boot priority settings. If when booting, it says something like "press F8 for BBS", press F8. If it just shows a logo, try hitting ESC or TAB, and it should show a more details output that may include the "press .. for BBS". If there is no BBS message, then ... Enter the BIOS setup (pressing DEL, or the indicated keys) Look for a menu that says "Boot" or similar. There should be an item that indicates "Boot Devices" or "Boot Priority". It may show your hard drive, your CD-ROM, and a Floppy (whether or not one is installed). Make sure the CD-ROM is listed above the Hard Drive; this will cause it to check the CD-ROM as a possibility for booting, before checking the hard drive. It also adds a second or two to boot time, so it may not be that way by default. The BBS menu, if there is one, lets you choose the boot device on a per-startup basis, but it will go back to the BIOS settings the next time you reboot. Hence, you can leave it defaulted to the hard drive, and use the BBS menu when you know you want to boot from the CD. The only reason a BIOS update would fix this, is if there was a bug preventing this from working, which is unlikely but is a remote (0.2%) possibility.
